Has Anyone Had A Hysterectomy And Bladder Lift Done During The Same Surgery
The bladder is a muscular organ in the pelvis that accepts urine from the kidneys, stores the urine at low pressure, & expels the urine during voluntary voiding. Though seemingly a simple reservoir, the bladder is a complex organ intricately connected with the brain and spinal cord with sensory, motor, and autonomic circuits.

Had a polypectectomy, ablation and surprise exploratory laprascopic. What kind of surgery is in my future? No specifics given just that more surgery
If someone has had subtotal colectomy w/Ileostomy placement, can a partial colectomy be performed later on down the road? And what's the difference?
Big difference : A subtotal colectomy is removing almost all the colon; usually just a couple of inches are left near the rectum. A partial colectomy is not done AFTER a subtotal colectomy because there is basically no colon left. A partial colectomy implies that only a segment of colon is removed, like the right or left, and a good amount of colon is left. ...Read more

Yes: This is a very popular "mommy make-over" combo because women who have children often have abdominal bulges afterwards and the breasts may have enlarged/drooped. The procedures are safe to do at the same time if the patient is in good health otherwise and the doctor has experience with the procedure. Combining the two increases risks slightly so some people choose to do them separately. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

I'm having double incision FTM top surgery done and was wondering if regional anesthesia is a viable option for that?
If a person has a fracture during a hip replacement should he have been told after the surgery. My husband just had cables and wires removed that were put in during the surgery because they were causing him pain and agony
This : This is a difficult question since the details of the surgery are only known to the surgeon and his/her staff. Was it a first-time hip replacement or a revision? Were the cables for a fracture or support of known bone loss? That is, were they planned before surgery or used to treat an unexpected problem? It is common to have weakness in the bone when removing a prior hip replacement and there are a number of ways to reinforce the bone. These cases are often complicated and there are so many issues to discuss that the surgeon may not have considered it an important factor changing the outcome or recovery at the time of surgery. Sometimes there is so much information that patients can't remember it all. With limited time for patient visits, some issues that don't seem pressing to the physician may not be discussed. Have a frank conversation with your surgeon. If you feel like you're not getting straight answers, get a second opinion and be sure to have all the records and images available. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
